Mr. Meeble is scheduled to perform on Friday at Cityscape.
First Fridays in December are something of a big deal. Although the mercury will likely dip into the 40-degree range, we're expecting a horde of culture vultures will be traipsing about Roosevelt Row and Grand Avenue in order to make the scene and scope out potential Christmas gifts.

Thing is, the hottest party is gonna be happening a few miles away at Cityscape. A slew of local band will be performing at the real estate development's First Friday affair, including Broken Poets, Buskin Cuffs, and Factories (formerly known as Underwater Getdown). The main attraction of the night will arguably Mr. Meeble, as the experimental electro-rock trio will be presenting their first performance in more than a year.

There's plenty of other activity taking place both at the Cityscape party and during nine other event's we've selected for this week's edition of 10 Things. To get the full rundown, however, y'all will have to hit the link below.
